If you are really serious about your lifting, and moving some serious weight, like squatting 600lbs, 800lbs, 1000lbs (or more) then a squat bar may be perfect for you.

StrongArm Deadlift bars are

  • Thicker and stiffer: Than a regular powerbar. When you squat into the hole with a big weight, you want that bar to stop quickly at the bottom, with zero “whip”, meaning you are not trying to come back up while the weights are still going down. Most power bars are 29 or 30 mm, our squat bar is 32 mm thick, resulting in a very stiff bar.
  • Longer: Than a regular bar. The longer sleeves allow for more weight to be put on, especially necessary if you are using gym plates, that tend to be wider than competition plates. The longer shaft provides more space for the big guys to get their hands out wider, while still inside the collars.
  • More knurling: On your back. Most regular power bars have 4 or 5 inches of knurling in the center, our squat bar has a full 12″ of coarse knurling for that real “velcro’d on the back” feeling.
  • Custom made: To our specifications, not an off-the-shelf bar.
  • Course knurling: with sharp points.
  • Made of Chromium alloy steel: Chromium allow is designed to add hardness to stee
  • The shaft is bare steel: sleeves are finished with a hardened chrome plating.
  • Bar weight: Bar weight is 25 kg.

Worth it

Was excited to buy this, watched basement brandons video many times. Probably put the purchase off for about 12months. When it arrived i unboxed it and wondered if i made the right decision. I was on a program so i actually didnt squat with it for 3 days after it arrived. I did bench with it however just because i was horny to use it. I messed up my weight haha not being used to a 55pound bar. Finally i squated with it and put any doubts of my purchase to rest. I absolutely love thiss bar. Not only does it feel great on my back, the extra length has made it easier to rerack with losing a digit. I have 2 other naked barbells from bells and strongman, i workout in a controlled environment and rust hasnt been an issue in the forst 2 years. I always say 10s dont exist, so id give this bar a 9.5. Cant beat the price, and i love that ita Canadian. All aboard the gain train baby!!!! Choooo choooo
